Carnival of Careers #2

Welcome to the June 9, 2008 edition of carnival of careers! There were a LOT of submissions to the carnival – unfortunately I had to reject a fairly significant portion of them for being off-topic. Remember, if you’re submitting to the carnival, it has to be a career-related article. The next edition’s not going to be posted here – scroll down to the end and you’ll find out where it’ll be!

Here’s my “bonus read” before the carnival gets underway: do you love your job, or your paycheck?

Here are my picks for “the best of the best” for this edition of the carnival!

  1. Some good stuff listed there. I especially like I Have to Work For an Idiot…don’t we all. So, when we get promoted are we the idiots? That’s depressing.

  2. I had to go through and read this twice…was I an editor’s pick?!? Thanks so much! And thank you for creating this carnival. There’s lots of great info here!

  3. Steve, thanks for hosting! I was on vacation when this went live and I’m still catching up… Wow, it’s been a rough couple weeks! 🙂
